In my grubby hands

I got an oversized envelope in the post yesterday that contained my contributor copy of Sand, Issue #5 with my story Play Date in it. I am the last story in the last regular issue of Sand (as they go to a yearly anthology series after this). Better get your order in as it will be a collectible in years to follow (and not for my story, but for the fantastic mark they are going to leave on the dark fantasy and horror world).

Now I get to sit back, do a little reading this morning until my old school (Iowa State University) goes up against their instate rival (the University of Iowa) and I am hoping I have it on my satellite TV package so I can watch it, otherwise I am going to be glued to my radio for about 3.5 hours today. Speaking of Football (sorry, American football for those of you outside of the states) Our local high school team clobbered their opponent last night 78-8 which means in the three games they have played they have managed to outscore their opponents 207-14. We are kicking some serious butt this year. Either that or the other guys really stink. Way to Go CRB (Coon Rapids-Bayard)!

I wish I could say the same for my high school (where I teach). We lost 22-0 last night after a 18-13 win the week before. So our point spread: 18-35. Not so hot.

Aaron- I just found out the H.S. I graduated from is in contention for a conference title (along side the H.S. my wife went to. Go figure)

Cate- I did nothing other than show up for the game. :)

Wait, there's FOOTBALL in highschool?

Can you tell I was a nerd back then ; ) And, well, up to present day.

My copy came in the mail today! Woot!

That was a sad and spooky tale.

Nat- I didn't pay attention to football in H.S. either. It wasn't until after I got married, much to my wife's dismay.

Jameson- I hope you enjoyed it. (I have written several in the same style of late)

My god, I'm so so glad it's football season again. My grad school alma mater (Ohio State-- I know, I know) got their butts handed to 'em last night by USC, but that's okay.

I never had a good high school team to cheer for; I was a soccer girl anyhow until I went to OSU, at which point ignoring football becomes impossible. Might be the best thing Ohio did for me ;)

Katey- My wife's cousin was the head strength coach at Ohio State for a while in the 90's. at least they know some success on the national level. Yay! for Football season.
